Call us old-fashioned, but we’re crazy for kale. Once the internet’s favorite green thing, it may not be having its heyday anymore, but it’s still flourishing in our hearts (and our gardens). Those sturdy green leaves are just what we want when making picnic-worthy kale salads, or holding up in warming fall kale soups. Whether you prefer it curly or lacinato (dinosaur style), sautéed kale makes a simple and delicious side to go with steak or chicken (we have both creamy and regular versions), and if you’re eating meatless, then vegetarian kale recipes will fill you up. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Thanksgiving feast without at least one kale dish on the table!
